Antilles cardinal-designate wants to remain 'country parish priest'

 | 

Even as he prepares to receive a red biretta from the hands of Pope Francis, Cardinal-designate Kelvin Felix hopes he can continue his ministry as a "country parish priest."

But he admitted he may have a few new assignments from Pope Francis.

The Dominica-born prelate, ordained in 1956, is the first cardinal to be named from the Antilles bishops' conference, based in Trinidad and Tobago.
